I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.

Churches Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Churches

1.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
Amis, Kingsley

2.
This merriment of parsons is mighty offensive.
Johnson, Samuel

3.
The Church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

4.
A little, round, fat, oily man of God.
Thomson, James

5.
An instinctive taste teaches men to build their churches with spire steeples which point as with a silent finger to the sky and stars.
Coleridge, Samuel Taylor

6.
I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

7.
Though the church has many critics, it has no rivals.

8.
In the Church, considered as a social organism, the mysteries inevitably degenerate into beliefs.
Weil, Simone

9.
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Carlyle, Thomas

10.
A glorious Church is like a magnificent feast; there is all the variety that may be, but every one chooses out a dish or two that he likes, and lets the rest alone: how glorious soever the Church is, every one chooses out of it his own religion, by which he governs himself, and lets the rest alone.
Selden, John

11.
Standards of conduct appropriate to civil society or the workings of a democracy cannot be purely and simply applied to the Church.
Ratzinger, Cardinal Joseph

12.
The Bible knows nothing of solitary religion.
Wesley, John

13.
A Church which has lost its memory is in a sad state of senility.
Chadwick, Henry

14.
Once is orthodox, twice is puritanical.
Melbourne, Lord

15.
A woman's asking for equality in the church would be comparable to a black person's demanding equality in the Ku Klux Klan.
Daly, Mary

16.
The problem is not that the churches are filled with empty pews, but that the pews are filled with empty people.
Shedd, Charlie

17.
It's about time we quit playing church in these services that start at eleven o clock sharp and end at twelve o clock dull.
Havner, Vance

18.
The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.
Beecher, Henry Ward

19.
The Pope is an idol whose hands are tied and whose feet are kissed.
Voltaire

20.
The Christian church is a society of sinners. It is the only society in the world, membership in which is based upon the single qualification that the candidate shall be unworthy of membership.
Morrison, Charles C.

21.
I never saw, heard, nor read, that the clergy were beloved in any nation where Christianity was the religion of the country. Nothing can render them popular, but some degree of persecution.
Swift, Jonathan

22.
My own mind is my own church.
Paine, Thomas

23.
I have no objections to churches so long as they do not interfere with God's work.
Atkinson, Brooks

24.
Those who marry God can become domesticated too -- it's just as hum-drum a marriage as all the others. The word Love means a formal touch of the lips as in the ceremony of the Mass, and Ave Marialike dearest is a phrase to open a letter. This marriage like the world's marriages was held together by habits and tastes shared in common between God and themselves -- it was God's taste to be worshipped and their taste to worship, but only at stated hours like a suburban embrace on a Saturday night.
Greene, Graham

25.
Mass ought to be in Latin, unless you could do it in Greek or Chinese. In fact, any abracadabra that no bloody member of the public or half-educated ape of a clargimint could think he understood.
Pound, Ezra

26.
The church is so subnormal that if it ever got back to the New Testament normal it would seem to people to be abnormal.
Havner, Vance

27.
A full-dressed ecclesiastic is a sort of go-cart of divinity; an ethical automaton. A clerical prig is, in general, a very dangerous as well as contemptible character. The utmost that those who thus habitually confound their opinions and sentiments with the outside coverings of their bodies can aspire to, is a negative and neutral character, like wax-work figures, where the dress is done as much to the life as the man, and where both are respectable pieces of pasteboard, or harmless compositions of fleecy hosiery.
Hazlitt, William

28.
Many come to bring their clothes to church rather than themselves.
Fuller, Thomas

29.
I'm a priest, not a priestess. Priestess implies mumbo jumbo and all sorts of pagan goings-on. Those who oppose us would love to call us priestesses. They can call us all the names in the world -- it's better than being invisible.
Heyward, Carter

30.
The greatest hindrances to the evangelization of the world are those within the church.
Mott, John R.

31.
The priesthood in many ways is the ultimate closet in Western civilization, where gay people particularly have hidden for the past two thousand years.
Spong, John

32.
Where God builds a church the devil builds a chapel.
Luther, Martin

33.
Archbishop -- A Christian ecclesiastic of a rank superior to that attained by Christ.
Mencken, H. L.

34.
The church exists to train its member through the practice of the presence of God to be servants of others, to the end that Christlikeness may become common property.
Brown, William Adams

35.
Sign in lot: Church parking only. We will not forgive those who trespass against us.

36.
It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God's name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.
Havner, Vance

37.
Church attendance is as vital to a disciple as a transfusion of rich, healthy blood to a sick man.
Moody, Dwight L.

38.
The question confronting the Church today is not any longer whether the man in the street can grasp a religious message, but how to employ the communications media so as to let him have the full impact of the Gospel message.
John Paul II

39.
What is wrong with priests and popes is that instead of being apostles and saints, they are nothing but empirics who say I know instead of I am learning, and pray for credulity and inertia as wise men pray for skepticism and activity.
Shaw, George Bernard

40.
People have described me as a management bishop but I say to my critics, Jesus was a management expert too.
Carey, George

41.
I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.
Wilder, Billy

42.
The act of bell ringing is symbolic of all proselytizing religions. It implies the pointless interference with the quiet of other people.
Pound, Ezra

43.
There is not in the universe a more ridiculous, nor a more contemptible animal, than a proud clergyman.
Fielding, Henry

44.
The root of almost every schism and heresy from which the Christian Church has suffered, has been because of the effort of men to earn, rather than receive their salvation; and the reason preaching is so commonly ineffective is, that it often calls on people to work for God rather than letting God work through them.
Ruskin, John

45.
We praise Him, we bless Him, we adore Him, we glorify Him, and we wonder who is that baritone across the aisle and that pretty woman on our right who smells of apple blossoms. Our bowels stir and our cod itches and we amend our prayers for the spiritual life with the hope that it will not be too spiritual.
Cheever, John

46.
The local church is the outcrop of the church universal.
Forsyth, Peter T.

47.
Too hot to go to Church? What about Hell?
Poster In Dayton, Ohio

48.
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
Thomson, James

49.
But a priest's life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed -- a compass, not a weathercock.
Huxley, Aldous

50.
Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.
Proverb, Irish
